Realistic Rose Night Light Shade

Cosmos Gifts

Description

This elegant decorative night light displays an illuminated ceramic rose in full bloom and a rosebud in purple or pink. An incandescent clear 7-watt bulb powers the 4” w by 4.5” h by 3.5” d wall plug-in.

Designer Advice

Decorative night lights with a 3D structure, like this ceramic floral piece, add warm illumination to your room. However, because the design sticks out from the wall, there might be a better type of light to put in wall sockets low to the ground where curious children or pets can reach. Choose it for a bathroom or an adult bedroom.

Description

This 2.5” wide by 5.2” tall plug-in nightlight rotates 360 degrees to go into any wall plug. The tall thin cylindrical amber Himalayan salt drum lampshade emits negative ions through a metal trellis pattern overlay.

Designer Advice

Ionizers are a good air purifying tool, and so are nightlights that can mimic the same effect. This plug-up fancy nightlight with a warm amber-orange crystal salt lamp shade uses a natural process to create negative ions that remove harmful positive ions from the air emitted from most of your home’s electronic devices. The metal trellis overlay adds fun shadows.

Description

This set of two battery-operated vintage lamps in a white open motif pattern can work for any surface. And a 5-watt Edison bulb shines through the hollowed 4” w x 8” h x 4” d metal base for soothing ambient light.

Designer Advice

Battery-operated fancy night lights have several advantages over the plug-in variety. One distinction is that you can move them around the room or relocate them to a new space without concern for access to a power outlet. It’s also useful in situations where there might be a power failure. But you can still get the same elegant, warm glow.

Description

This unique 6” w x 6” h x 1” d sized rustic plug-in night light shade is a black metal truck. The rough finish and hollowed decorative night light outline attached to a brown plastic base look chic and fun.

Designer Advice

A handcrafted metal truck design with an unfinished look can be a whimsical addition to workshops, garages, masculine bathrooms, chic country guest rooms, or a boy’s nursery. The rough texture and open holes cast a fascinating shadow display on your walls once you toggle the light switch to the on position and turn out the lights.

Description

Some fancy nightlights have a fun, less-is-more approach. The clear vintage Edison-style teardrop light bulb exposes the inner filaments that light up when it’s on. And the antique-inspired brass base is a basic understated cylinder.

Designer Advice

Not all nightlights will have a cover to hide the light bulb. If you choose a bare minimalistic or vintage look, you may prefer the absence of a lampshade night light like Edison bulbs. This 2700k 8-lumen LED light with an auto dusk to dawn function is versatile enough to fit into every environment to create a homey, cozy nuance.

Description

This incandescent 5” w x 5” h x 3” d tin star nightlight shade offers a soft glow of warm 3000k white light and two lumens. And there’s an auto dusk-to-dawn function of the 7-watt bulb. 

Designer Advice

Another easy way to get a unique light effect out of a night light with lamp shade is to choose a design that offers a surface texture that will allow some light to shine through and block the rest. The many holes on the star add fun shadow lines. And a dust-to-dawn function makes the bulb last longer.

Buying Guide

If you’re constantly tired of changing your decorative night light batteries, consider plug-in versions instead. These types of decorative night lights can stay illuminated all night without raising your electricity bill.

On the other hand, a battery-powered night light can prove to be useful when you don’t have an outlet nearby. Keep in mind that regularly replacing batteries can be quite expensive in the long run.

When it comes to designs, there are attention-grabbing shades that include antique embroidery, colorful prints, and gothic fringes as well as more subtle pieces with lighter color palettes and delicate patterns. The design you choose will depend on whether you want to give your bedroom a touch of style or a cozy appeal.

Decorative night lights with shades are typically made out of light, durable materials such as plastic, vinyl, and canvas. This allows you to plug them in wherever you need without worrying too much about their weight. We’d recommend looking for a durable vinyl version with a canvas shade, as this will be the most likely to last for years to come.

Decorative night lights with shades that are white (or light-toned, such as cream or pink) will do a more efficient job of lighting your bedroom.

However, that may not be the point of your nightlight. If you’re looking for something to match your room, go for a darker color in a tone that’s already present in the space.

This will provide a subdued light and a dramatic effect that’s perfect for sleeping, but still having that comforting glow.
